Unprecedented Moment in History: Niagara Falls in Canada Lit Up in Tricolor on Independence Day

The iconic Niagara Falls, which marks the international border between the United States and Canada lit up in tricolour

New Delhi, Aug 18, 2017: Canada’s fascinating waterfalls, the Niagara falls on August 15 brightened in saffron, white and green to celebrate the 71st Independence Day of India.

The world’s most astonishing waterfalls appeared even more spectacular as the Indian tri colours irradiated.

Vikas Swarup, the former spokesperson of the MEA and currently the High Commissioner of India to Canada shared the bewitching moment through his twitter handle. Swarup on Wednesday took to Twitter and shared a post along with a picture.

 

Dinesh Bhatia, Consulate General of India in Toronto also shared the video of the striking view of Niagara falls via his twitter account.

 

 

Bhatia also shared another twitter post with several photos of the beautiful sight in which he wrote:

 

This is the unprecedented moment in the history that the iconic Niagara Falls, which marks the international border between the United States and Canada illuminated in tricolour.

An exciting point about this imposing moment that has now been observed in history is that the man behind colouring the wonder beauty is an Indian from Kerala.

According to TOI, Sibu Nair who works as an administrator at the University of Buffalo, New York is the impelling force behind this initiative. On August 11, he asserted, “Niagara waterfalls will be illuminated in the colours of the Indian national flag on August 15 for 15 minutes, from 10-10.15 pm, New York time. We are very much excited about it.”
